WHAT IF I DO NOT SEE RESULTS WITH THE PORE CLEANSING MD SYSTEM?

Firstly, ensure that the tip is properly inserted into the tool and that there is sufficient suction

If you feel you do have excess oil or clogged pores:

  1. Be sure to use enough Pore Prep Solution on skin to remove dead skin cells blocking pores and to break down the clogs in the pores for easier extraction.
  2. Since pores are deep and sebum can be waxy and sticky, not all contents may be removed during the first use
  3. Soften hardened oil and build-up for easier removal by using system after a hot shower or application of a warm, damp washcloth over face for 1 minute.
  4. Remember, it is important not to overwork skin. Keep using the tool on a weekly basis as instructed for best results

If you don’t observe excess oil or visibly enlarged, clogged pores, you may be the amongst the fortunate minority who have great pores. This tool may not be for you. This is true for those who have dry skin with lower oil production. Remember, oil production can also fluctuate due to stress, hormonal changes, weather conditions and lifestyle.

WHAT ARE THE FEATURED INGREDIENTS OF THE PORE PREP SOLUTION AND WHY WAS IT CHOSEN FOR PORE CLEANSING MD SYSTEM?

The Pore Prep Solution is formulated with a carefully chosen blend of ingredients to exfoliate the skin, loosen sebum, reduce potential for redness and provide optimal glide and suction. This will allow the tool to achieve maximum efficacy and the best experience.

WARRANTY

This warranty extends only to the original purchaser and only when purchased from an authorised Rodan + Fields Independent Consultant through rodanandfields.com. If the product should become defective within the warranty period, contact Rodan + Fields Customer Service. This warranty does not cover products damaged by the following:

  • Accident, misuse, abuse or alteration
  • Servicing by unauthorised persons
  • Contact with any liquid
  • Use with unauthorised accessories
  • Any other conditions beyond our control

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT WHEN USING THE PORE CLEANING MD SYSTEM?

Similar to a professional extraction facial, skin may be red or sensitive after using the Pore Cleansing MD System. This is a normal reaction to vacuum suction and should dissipate after a few hours.

To allow redness and sensitivity time to alleviate, use the Tool at night before bed and avoid using prior to any important events. If your face feels warm and inflamed, do not use your Regimen until it dissipates as it may further agitate your skin

CAN THE PORE CLEANSING MD SYSTEM BRUISE SKIN?

When used as directed on skin that is not sensitive, fragile or prone to bruises, broken capillaries or excessive dryness, the Pore Cleansing MD System should not bruise skin or leave lasting marks. However, the Pore Cleansing Tool is a powerful suction-based device and therefore may result in minor bruises or dark “hickey” marks on skin if used on sensitive skin, skin is overworked or Tool is used incorrectly.

To avoid overworking skin:

  • Always start on lowest suction setting doing only one pass across any given area. As tolerated, ramp up to higher suction and up to only 3 passes in any given area
  • When using the Pore Cleansing Tip, use continuous gliding motions not holding or lingering in any one area. Roll and tilt the Tip to break suction and remove from skin; do not lift directly off skin
  • When using the Blackhead Removal Tip, do not hold to skin for more than 3 seconds or exceed 3 attempts on any one blackhead in a single use
  • Test and practice the correct motions on the inner forearm before using on face
  • Use enough Pore Prep Solution to fully saturate the gauze pad and cover skin. Use Tool only on area with Pore Prep Solution and use while Solution is still wet

I NOW HAVE A BRUISE, RED LINE OR HICKEY-LOOKING MARK ON MY FACE. WHAT SHOULD I DO?

If you see a “bruise” or “hickey” after using the Pore Cleansing MD System then this indicates that the vacuum/suction setting is too strong, you’ve overworked your skin or your skin is too sensitive. This Tool is not recommended for anyone with sensitive skin, on sensitive areas or active acne. In most cases this should resolve within 1-2 days and can dissipate more quickly if you:

  1. Make a cold compress by placing crushed ice in a zip lock bag wrapped within a soft cloth and hold this on the area for 3-5 minutes three times an hour.
  2. Ask a pharmacist or your doctor about using an Over the Counter treatment to localized areas of irritation 1-3 times per day—avoiding the eyes.

Do not use the Pore Cleansing Tool if you have red, sensitive skin or visible red capillaries. Avoid using the Pore Cleansing Tool if you have a bleeding disorder, visible capillaries, active acne, or are on blood thinning medicines because this will greatly increase your chance of causing a bruise or “hickey.”

WHAT ARE SOME BEST PRACTICES FROM DR. KATIE RODAN, DR. KATHY FIELDS AND MARY RADFORD, RN?

Dr. Katie Rodan & Dr. Kathy:

  • STEAM PORES: Soften hardened oil and build-up for easier removal by using system after a hot shower or application of a warm, damp washcloth over face for 1 minute.
  • CALM REDNESS: Layer SOOTHE Sensitive Skin Treatment into your PM routine to visibly minimise any residual redness.
  • USE ON YOUR BODY: The shoulders and back are also prone to clogged pores and blackheads. Apply instructions for each tip to address these areas as well. You may also occasionally see blackheads on your chest so we only recommend using the Blackhead Removal Tip in this area.

Mary Radford, RN:

  • DON’T OVERWORK YOUR SKIN: Always use the lowest suction setting for the Pore Cleansing MD Tool on first use and avoid introducing new products into your routine during the first couple weeks of using the Tool.
  • SELFIE: Take a picture before using the Pore Cleansing MD System, immediately after use and again 24 hours later to see the improvement in your pores and complexion.

IS IT NECESSARY TO USE THE PORE CLEANSING MD TOOL ON THE ENTIRE T-ZONE?

We recommend using the Pore Cleansing Tool with the Pore Cleansing Tip on any area of the Tzone (forehead, nose and chin) where you experience clogged pores. For example, the nose tends to have the most excess oil production so clogged pores are most likely to be a concern in this area. However, everyone’s skin is different, so some people may experience clogged pores on all areas of the T-zone. It is important to always avoid using the Pore Cleansing Tip on the eye, lip and cheek areas.

The Blackhead Removal Tip can be used on blackheads all-over the face avoiding the eye and lip areas.

WHAT ARE THE INGREDIENTS IN THE PORE PREP SOLUTION?

Water/Aqua/Eau, Glycerin, Propanediol, Diglycerin, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Water, Sophora Japonica Flower Extract, Niacinamide, Rhamnose, Glucose, Arginine, Bis-Ethoxydiglycol Cyclohexane 1,4 Dicarboxylate, Lactic Acid, Salicylic Acid, Polydextrose, Dextrin, Amylopectin, Disodium EDTA, Polyglyceryl-4 Caprate, Polyglyceryl-6 Caprate, Polyacrylate Crosspolymer-6, Glucuronic Acid, Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Benzoate, Sodium Salicylate.

CAN YOU USE PORE CLEANSING MD SYSTEM NEAR THE EYES?

Do not use the Pore Cleansing MD System on the skin around the eyes as the skin in this area is very thin and delicate. Even if you see clogged pores or blackheads near the eye area, do not use the Tool even on the lower suction setting. Instead seek a dermatologist for a diagnosis and treatment. The Pore Cleansing Tip is only meant for the T-zone and the Blackhead Removal Tip is meant for blackheads all-over the face avoiding the eye and lip areas.

CAN YOU USE PORE CLEANSING MD SYSTEM ON THE LIPS?

No, do not use Pore Cleansing MD System on your lips and be very careful when near the area. The skin is very thin consisting of three to five cellular layers instead of up to 16. Thinner skin means it’s easier to see the blood vessels underneath which is one of the major reasons to be careful. The Pore Cleansing Tip is only meant for the T-zone and the Blackhead Removal Tip is meant for blackheads all-over the face avoiding the eye and lip areas.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN TEENAGE AND ADULT PORES?

No matter your age, clogged pores and blackheads can be unsightly and take a toll on confidence. In teenage skin, there’s a lot of oil production, so pores get clogged and look large. In adults, the collagen that surrounds the pore to keep it nice and tight begins to deteriorate with age. So the skin around the pore sags and the pore really opens up. Often the pore can become clogged with oil and dead skin cells that oxidize causing a grey tone.

CAN I USE PORE CLEANSING MD SYSTEM ON MY CHEST, SHOULDERS AND BACK?

Chest: The skin on your chest is more delicate than that of your shoulders and back’s skin and may be susceptible to blackheads. As such, you may only use the Blackhead Removal Tip on your chest. Do not use the Pore Cleansing Tip on this area.

Shoulders and Back: The shoulders and back are also prone to clogged pores and blackheads. You may use both the Pore Cleansing Tip and the Blackhead Removal Tip on these areas. For a precise application, it is best to have someone assist you with the Pore Cleansing Tool and Tips.

ARE THERE ANY CONSIDERATIONS WITH PORE CLEANSING MD SYSTEM FOR OILY SKIN TYPES?

The Pore Cleaning MD System is a perfect way to help balance out oily skin. Pores produce sebum (skin’s natural oil) that is vital to condition and protect the skin keeping it resilient, supple, moisturised and healthy.

All pores are subject to becoming clogged or congested with a potential for blackheads and breakouts. Most often, blackheads and clogged pores appear in the oily T-Zone area. This results in congestion and dry skin in some areas which sometimes triggers clear pores to take up the slack of oil production making skin oily on the surface. That is why you can have clogged pores and an oily T-zone. Then these unattended plugs can become dryer, darker from oxidation resulting in a blackhead.

Using the Pore Cleaning MD System on a weekly basis helps keep skin more balanced with less dry and oily patches.

ARE THERE ANY CONSIDERATIONS WITH PORE CLEANSING MD SYSTEM FOR DRY SKIN?

We do not recommend using the Pore Cleaning MD System on skin prone to excess dryness or flaky, chapped, cracked skin or other skin conditions (i.e. eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis and rosacea). However, for occasionally dry skin, the System can unclog pores to help reduce the amount of oil needed to condition and protect the skin.

Using the Pore Cleaning MD System weekly can help skin to appear more luminous, healthy and youthful. We recommend complementing your Regimen with ENHANCEMENTS MicroDermabrasion Paste to buff off dead skin cells that can clog pores and dull skin three mornings a week on days you are not using the Pore Cleansing DM Tool.

Add R+F Active Hydration Serum to deliver a high level of hydration in an oil-free lightweight formula to nourish and replenish skin. Other properties include balancing out oily and dry areas, visibly smoothing fine lines, adding radiance and helping skin to look plumper and firmer. On the night that you use Pore Cleansing MD System, follow with your Regimen cleanser and toner then apply Active Hydration Serum and layer the remaining skincare products.

HOW DOES PORE CLEANSING MD SYSTEM COMPARE TO THE UNBLEMISH REGIMEN, SPOTLESS REGIMEN AND REDEFINE PORE MINIMISING TONER?

Pore Cleansing MD System helps unclog pores and remove blackheads instantly. Once weekly use helps keep pores clean and reduce potential for acne breakouts. Because this System has a combination of formula + tool it can provide a deeper, more targeted pore clean than formula alone.

  • Pore Prep Solution exfoliates, loosens sebum, reduces redness and provides optimal glide and suction.
  • R+F Pore Cleansing Tool uses the right amount of suction & pressure for effective blackhead extraction and pore cleansing.

UNBLEMISH Regimen gently and effectively clears adult acne, prevents blemishes and visibly smooths, firms and evens skin tone.

  • Colloidal Sulfur calms skin and reduces appearance of redness
  • Salicylic Acid penetrates pores to reduce acne blemishes and helps clear future acne pimples
  • Alpha-hydroxy Acids exfoliate and brighten skin
  • Benzoyl Peroxide and nourishing gel provide gentle and effective acne treatment

SPOTLESS Regimen helps clear existing teen and young adult acne while preventing new blemishes from forming.

  • 5% Benzoyl Peroxide penetrates pore to reduce current acne and helps prevent new blemishes from forming
  • Dual-chamber with BPO2 Technology delivers more Oxygen and Benzoyl Peroxide to the pores to reduce the number and severity of breakouts

REDEFINE Pore Minimising Toner exfoliates pore-clogging, dead skin cells while helping to reduce the appearance of pores.

  • Polyhydroxy Acids exfoliate pore-clogging dead skin cells
  • Natural oligosaccharides reduce the appearance of pores

CAN I JUST USE THE PORE CLEANSING MD SYSTEM ONCE A WEEK AND MAINTAIN PORES CLEAR OF PLUGS AND BLACKHEADS?

The Pore Cleansing MD System can help clear and maintain healthy pores when used with your skincare routine. However, for those with oily skin or who are prone to clogged pores and acne, once weekly use of the System may not be enough to keep skin clear. In this case, we suggest one of these effective Regimens.

UNBLEMISH Regimen gently and effectively clears adult acne, prevents blemishes and visibly smooths, firms and evens skin

  • Colloidal Sulfur calms skin and reduces appearance of redness
  • Salicylic Acid penetrates pores to reduce acne blemishes and helps clear future acne pimples
  • Alpha-hydroxy Acids exfoliate and brighten skin
  • Benzoyl Peroxide and nourishing gel provide gentle and effective acne treatment

SPOTLESS Regimen helps clear existing teen and young adult acne while preventing new blemishes from forming.

  • 5% Benzoyl Peroxide penetrates pore to reduce current acne and helps prevent new blemishes from forming
  • Dual-chamber with BPO2 Technology delivers more Oxygen and Benzoyl Peroxide to the pores to reduce the number and severity of breakouts

Consistent usage of either of these Regimens is imperative to help clear existing acne and prevent future breakouts from happening.

WHAT IS THE RECOMMENDED AGE RANGE FOR USING THE PORE CLEANSING MD SYSTEM?

Our products are formulated to be safe and effective and are designed for use by adults. However, we also recognise that teens may benefit from the instant and over time benefits of our Pore Cleansing MD System. Please keep in mind that with all skincare products intended for adults, a teenager should bring the system information to their parents or guardian for review.

People of all ages should use common sense when deciding to use this product and avoid using on skin that is frail, thin, delicate, sensitive or prone to bruising. You should also avoid using on acne pimples, whiteheads and dilated capillaries. For more guidelines and warnings, please review the complete product brochure.

Also keep in mind that with aging the skin becomes thinner, more fragile, prone to dilated capillaries and bruising. If this describes your skin, do not use the Pore Cleansing MD System. If you have any other skin health concerns then contact your doctor before using.

HOW DOES PORE CLEANSING MD SYSTEM COMPARE TO OUR DISCONTINUED MACRO EXFOLIATOR?

Pore Cleansing MD System helps unclog pores and remove blackheads instantly. Once weekly use helps keep pores clean and reduce potential for acne breakouts.

  • Pore Prep Solution exfoliates, loosens sebum, reduces redness and provides optimal glide and suction.
  • R+F Pore Cleansing Tool uses the right amount of suction & pressure for effective blackhead extraction and pore cleansing.

The MACRO Exfoliator was an exfoliation tool that swept away dead skin cells over the entire face and was not intended to deep cleanse pores like our Pore Cleansing MD System. Alternatively, if you would like the benefits of micro-exfoliation, we recommend the AMP MD derma-roller with micro-exfoliating tips that conditions the uppermost layer of skin and boosts the performance of other products.

HOW AND WHY SHOULD YOU INCORPORATE PORE CLEANSING MD SYSTEM WITH REDEFINE REGIMEN?

To minimise the appearance of your pores. As collagen and elastin production slows, pores lose their support and flop open filling with dead skin cells from slow cellular turnover and excess oil forming clogs and blackheads. This is why enlarged pores are one of the top concerns for aging skin.

Pore Cleansing MD System instantly removes the build-up of excess oil, debris and dead skin cells deep within the pore which can lead to congestion, stretching and enlargement of pores.

The REDEFINE Regimen helps skin appear more smooth and firm. The Pore Minimising Toner assists with minimising their appearance:

  • Polyhydroxy Acids to exfoliate pore-clogging dead skin cells
  • Natural oligosaccharides to reduce the appearance of pores

  • Deeply cleanses pores by clearing dirt, excess oil and blackheads in seconds

Users of AMP MD Derma-Roller: skip the Roller on nights when using the pore tool

HOW AND WHY SHOULD YOU INCORPORATE PORE CLEANSING MD SYSTEM WITH REVERSE (US BRIGHTENING) REGIMEN?

HOW AND WHY SHOULD YOU INCORPORATE PORE CLEANSING MD SYSTEM WITH RECHARGE REGIMEN?

Your skin is constantly bombarded by environmental and lifestyle stressors that biologically disrupt your skin’s balance, its energy and its integrity.

RECHARGE Regimen boosts, balances and defends skin against the visible signs of stress from environmental assault and your lifestyle.

WHY DO I NEED BOTH AMP MD AND PORE CLEANSING MD SYSTEM?

The REDEFINE AMP MD Derma Roller and Pore Cleansing MD Tool are very different and offer unique benefits – the first offers micro-exfoliation to enhance benefits of other products while the Pore Cleansing MD Tool uses a precise amount of suction and pressure to instantly unclog pores and remove blackheads. The REDEFINE AMP MD System and Pore Cleansing MD System can both be incorporated into your skincare routine, however they should be used on different nights.

The unique, high precision AMP MD Micro-Exfoliating Roller conditions skin and boosts the efficacy of your other products while clinical strength Retinal-MD Technology in Intensive Renewing Serum penetrates deep to empower skin’s own renewing process. With just one minute a night, you can see visibly advanced firming, smoothing of lines & wrinkles and an overall more luminous and refined complexion.

At-home professional Pore Cleansing MD System is easy to use and gives the dermatological benefits of in-office services. Pore Cleansing Tool uses suction, combined with the right amount
of pressure to immediately remove pore-clogging dirt and debris, excess oil, and blackheads which helps restore a healthy, radiant-looking complexion

HOW AND WHY SHOULD YOU USE PORE CLEANSING MD SYSTEM WITH ACTIVE HYDRATION SERUM?

Those with oily skin/acne prone skin need hydration. And even though there may be no visible signs, oily skin can often be dry underneath causing it to produce more oil. Active Hydration Serum is oil-free, so it will leave skin feeling smooth, soft and radiant, and not oily or greasy. In fact, Active Hydration Serum can help balance skin so that it looks hydrated and radiant.

For those with oily skin, we recommend nightly use and apply after your Regimen’s Cleanser and Toner to help give your skin the hydration it needs. On the night that you use Pore Cleansing MD System follow with your Regimen cleanser and toner then apply Active Hydration Serum and layer the remaining skincare products.

HOW DO I DISPOSE OF THE PORE CLEANING MD TOOL?

When the Pore Cleansing MD Tool reaches the end of its life, you must dispose of the tool properly according to local laws and regulations. The Pore Cleansing MD Tool contains electronic components and a Lithium ion polymer battery pack so it must be disposed of separately from household waste.

Contact your local waste management services to learn about disposal and recycling options. Dispose of batteries properly for your local area.

CAN I USE A RODAN + FIELDS MASK AFTER USING THE PORE CLEANSING MD SYSTEM?

We suggest that you only apply your nighttime Regimen routine after the Pore Cleansing MD System. The two other products that could be added include ENHANCEMENTS Active Hydration Serum to hydrate the skin. Layer between cleaning, toning and your remaining Regimen products. As well as SOOTHE Sensitive Skin Treatment to help minimise visible redness and to calm skin. And this way you have another night to pamper yourself!

CAN I USE THE UNBLEMISH CLARIFYING MASK INSTEAD OF THE PORE CLEANSING MD SYSTEM FOR SIMILAR RESULTS?

The UNBLEMISH Clarifying Mask and Pore Cleansing MD System are two very different products that do different things. The UNBLEMISH Mask is for the occasional acne breakouts, while Pore Cleansing MD System is for clogged pores and blackheads only. In fact, you cannot use the Pore Tool on whiteheads and acne pimples as it may pop the pimples and cause inflammation and scarring.

It is best to use both products, but not on the same night. Experience the benefits of the Pore Cleansing MD System along with the UNBLEMISH Clarifying Mask on different evenings.

The Pore Cleansing MD System is meant for use on the T-zone area which includes forehead, nose, and chin and on blackheads:

  • Deeply cleanses pores by clearing dirt, excess oil and blackheads in seconds
  • Visibly minimises pore size and reduces potential for blackheads and breakouts
  • Evens and smooths texture for healthier-looking skin
  • Leaves skin feeling refreshed and purified, while looking clearer and more radiant

  • 10% Sulfur to fight acne blemishes and help prevent new blemishes from forming
  • Colour changing exfoliators that release calming ingredients to provide instant soothing and reduce visible redness and blotchiness associated with breakouts
  • Tea Tree Oil to help purify and refresh skin. Use this mask on 2-3 times a week on different evenings than the Pore Cleansing MD System to not only help maintain clearer pores but also help the surrounding skin.

WHAT IS THE RECHARGE REGIMEN?

RECHARGE is a 3-step Regimen for balancing, boosting and defending healthylooking skin now and in the future. RECHARGE was specifically developed to address the changing needs of 20-something skin for a healthy-looking, hydrated glow that’s here to stay. Each step works in perfect combination to:

  • Balance skin tone, texture, moisture-level + oil
  • Boost skin’s defense system
  • Defend against daily stressors, including pollution, blue light + UV rays

WHY DID DR. KATIE RODAN AND DR. KATHY FIELDS DEVELOP RECHARGE REGIMEN?

Dr. Katie Rodan and Dr. Kathy Fields developed the RECHARGE Regimen to address the unique needs of the 20-something consumer. People in their 20s were coming into their offices with needs that were different than their parents’ generation. Their skin was being constantly bombarded with hours of daily exposure to blue light, environmental toxins and the increased stress that impacts the quality of skin.

That’s because in your early 20s, shifts in your body’s metabolism make you more vulnerable to everyday stressors – environmental, emotional and physical – and can accelerate the aging process beneath the skin’s surface. This begins to happen even if it’s not yet visible on the skin. RECHARGE is a multitasking skincare routine that works with your body’s chemistry to boost its natural defenses and reveal your healthiest-looking skin now and in the future.

WHAT IS UNIQUE ABOUT THE RECHARGE REGIMEN?

The secret to RECHARGE is R+F’s biomimicking Electri5 Complex which is a unique blend of our breakthrough RFA+ Antioxidant Technology coupled with electrolytes, peptides, prebiotics, and superfruits. These 5 nutrient rich ingredients act like a super vitamin for the skin providing visible results from the first use.

  • RFA+ Antioxidant Technology boosts skin’s energy to defend against the visible signs of stress and early onset aging.
  • Electrolytes help rebalance moisture levels to help combat dry, dull, uneven-looking skin
  • Peptides reduce the visible signs of redness and inflammation
  • Prebiotics help balance skin’s microbiome to condition skin
  • Superfruits contain polyphenols to nourish skin and defend against environmental factors

HOW DOES THE RECHARGE REGIMEN WORK?

Based on Multi-Med Therapy (the right ingredients in the right formulations applied in the right order), RECHARGE is a comprehensive skincare Regimen that acts as a nutrient-rich super vitamin to boost skin’s defenses against environmental aggressors. RECHARGE is clinically-demonstrated to visibly improve skin from the first use while defending against visible signs of stress for hydrated, glowing, healthy-looking skin that is here to stay. The secret to RECHARGE is R+F’s proprietary Electri5 Complex which is a unique blend of our breakthrough RFA+ Antioxidant Technology coupled with electrolytes, peptides, prebiotics and super fruits.

WHAT IS ELECTRI5 COMPLEX?

It is a combination of Glutathione technology + Vitamin E that is exclusive to R+F.

WHO IS RECHARGE REGIMEN FOR?

The RECHARGE Regimen is for anyone concerned with occasional dullness, blotchiness, dryness, blemishes, clogged pores and/or overall unhealthy looking skin.

Anyone who wants their skin to look its best even when challenged by environmental pollution, sun damage, stress, lifestyle decisions and blue light exposure.

While, anyone who experiences these skin concerns can benefit from RECHARGE, it was develop to specifically to address the concerns most commonly experienced by people in their 20s.

HOW DO I KNOW IF I SHOULD USE RECHARGE REGIMEN?

RECHARGE was specifically designed for the skincare needs of the 20something consumer. At this age, metabolic shifts in your body cause your body’s most important antioxidant to decrease and limiting your skin’s ability to fight daily stressors and environmental toxins. This shift disrupts skin’s balance and can cause skin to look tired, dull, blotchy, and dehydrated. And beneath the skin this can trigger the signs of premature aging.

If your skin is lackluster and you are noticing visible signs of stress on your skin (occasional blemishes, dull, blotchy, tired or dehydrated skin) the RECHARGE Regimen would be perfect for you to help achieve a more hydrated, healthy looking complexion.

RECHARGE is also a great Regimen for those who may not necessarily think they have any skin concerns. This Regimen helps maintain skin’s appearance so that it looks and feels youthful for as long as it can. It boosts skin’s defenses so that the occasional physical and emotional stress won’t all of a sudden take a visible toll on the skin.

DO I NEED TO USE THE RECHARGE REGIMEN IF I DON’T YET SEE VISIBLE SIGNS OF STRESS OR AGING ON MY SKIN?

In your 20s you may have the ‘best skin of your adult life’ BUT not the best skin you could have or want. Every day, you are constantly bombarded by environmental and lifestyle stressors that biologically disrupt your skin’s balance, energy and integrity, even if it’s not yet visible on your skin. Without proper protection this can lead to tired, dull, blotchy, dehydrated and uneven skin and larger pores; and even trigger the signs of premature aging. Our breakthrough RECHARGE Regimen helps boost skin’s natural defense to reveal and maintain your healthiest-looking skin

WHAT ARE ENVIRONMENTAL AGGRESSORS AND LIFESTYLE STRESSORS?

Every day, you are exposed to environmental and lifestyle factors that can contribute to skin damage and affect the health of your skin. Daily exposure to elements like ultraviolet (UVA/UVB rays), blue light from computer and phone screens, stress, indoor heating/cooling systems, diet, lack of sleep and air pollution can cause inflammation and start to take a toll on your skin, leaving it looking dull, tired, blotchy and dehydrated. While you cannot totally avoid these irritants, you can proactively take steps to guard against them.

With a proprietary blend of antioxidants, electrolytes, peptides, prebiotics and super fruits, RECHARGE is clinically-demonstrated to defend against the visible signs of stress and premature aging, repairing skin’s moisture barrier for hydrated, glowing, healthy-looking skin now and in the future.

WHAT IS BLUE LIGHT AND HOW DOES IT AFFECT MY SKIN?

Blue light is a high-energy, short-wavelength light than can cause inflammation and photo-aging with concentrated exposure by weakening the skin’s surface. Every day we are exposed to blue light from electronic devices such as electronic tablets, flat screen TVs, smartphones, computers and even fluorescent light bulbs. We are getting significantly more blue light exposure than we used to from the sun alone. In fact, those age 22-36 check their phone an average of 150 times a day and are exposed to more than 10 hours of screen time a day making blue light defense a necessary part of their skincare routine.

RECHARGE’s Electri5 Complex was developed with ingredients that balance, boost and defend the skin against lifestyle stressors and daily environmental aggressors, including blue light and pollution, to reveal and maintain your healthiest-looking skin now and in the future.

HOW LONG SHOULD I USE THE RECHARGE REGIMEN?

There is no limit to how long you can use the RECHARGE Regimen. However, as your skin and skincare concerns continue to evolve, we recommend transitioning to one of our other skincare Regimens. Rodan + Fields now has a Regimen for every stage of life and skin need.

  • REDEFINE Regimen for the Appearance of Lines, Pores + Loss of Firmness
  • REVERSE Regimen for the Appearance of Discolouration + Uneven Skin tone
  • SOOTHE Regimen for Visible Redness, Dryness + Sensitivity
  • UNBLEMISH Regimen for Adult Acne + the Visible Signs of Aging
  • RECHARGE Regimen for Balancing, Boosting + Defending HealthyLooking Skin
  • SPOTLESS Regimen for Teen + Young Adult Acne

CAN THE RECHARGE REGIMEN BE USED ON ACNE-PRONE SKIN?

The RECHARGE Regimen is non-comedogenic and non-acnegenic, meaning it will not clog pores or cause breakouts. However, to treat acne breakouts we recommend using one of our acne fighting Regimens – UNBLEMISH to gently and effectively address adult acne and aging concerns or SPOTLESS to eliminate current acne and prevent future breakouts for teen and young adult skin.

CAN THE RECHARGE REGIMEN BE USED TO ADDRESS ANTI-AGING CONCERNS?

The RECHARGE Regimen was specifically designed to defend against the early signs of visible stress – dullness, blotchiness, dryness or tired-looking skin. If you start to notice more advanced signs of aging, we recommend you use one of our anti-aging Regimens – REDEFINE Regimen for the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and loss of firmness, or REVERSE Regimen for the appearance of discolouration and uneven skin tone.

CAN I USE RECHARGE IF I HAVE OILY SKIN?

The RECHARGE Regimen products are light-weight, oil-free and developed for all skin types. Step 3 of the Regimen will leave skin with a soft-matte finish perfect for those with oily skin.

For those with excessive oil or clogged T-zones, we recommend the Pore Cleansing MD System for professional-level pore cleansing at home. The unique suction tip will unclog pores and remove build-up, excess oil, and blackheads, which helps restore a healthy, radiant-looking complexion.

CAN I USE RECHARGE IF I HAVE DRY SKIN?

The RECHARGE Regimen balances the skin’s tone, texture, moisture level and blurs away imperfections. If your skin continues to feel dry we recommend using ENHANCEMENTS Micro-Dermabrasion Paste 2-3 times a week in place of the RECHARGE cleanser to buff away dead skin cells that can make skin look and feel dry and smooth texture.

Also, Active Hydration Serum with 3D3P Molecular Matrix technology is great addition for an added dose of moisture whenever you need it. It pulls moisture from the atmosphere to hydrate your skin in the exact amount that your skin needs. If adding Active Hydration Serum to your routine, use after Step 1 and before Step 2 of the RECHARGE Regimen.

WHY DOES THE RECHARGE REGIMEN PACKAGING LOOK DIFFERENT THAN THE OTHER RODAN + FIELDS REGIMENS?

Each R+F Regimen is unique and developed to meet the specific needs of that consumer. As with the launch of the SPOTLESS Regimen in February 2019, we carefully craft every element including, the ingredients, number of Regimen steps, and packaging to deliver the optimal user experience, formula delivery and ultimately maximum results.

WHAT DOES EACH STEP OF THE RECHARGE REGIMEN DO?

Each step of the RECHARGE Regimen was designed to work in perfect combination to balance, boost and defend healthy-looking skin. RECHARGE was developed based on our Multi-Med Therapy approach – the right ingredients, in the right formulations, in the right order – to deliver the best results.

  • STEP 1: 3-IN-1 SUPER CLEANSER
    Multitasking daily gel cleanser that removes makeup, exfoliates and lightly lathers to cleanse away dirt, oil, sweat + pollution from pores for clearer, softer, more vibrant-looking skin. Cleans and preps the skin, making it ready to absorb the following products. Sulfate-free.
  • STEP 2: ULTRA BOOST MOISTURIZING TREATMENT
    Weightless, fast-absorbing gel cream helps restore skin’s moisture barrier and boosts skin’s defenses to maintain optimum health and protect against visible signs of stress for a hydrated, healthy-looking glow. It continues working to retain your skin’s moisture throughout the day, while preserving your skin’s integrity, natural evenness and glow. Non-comedogenic.
  • STEP 3: PROTECT + BLUR BROAD SPECTRUM SPF 30
    Oil-free. 100% mineral-based UVA and UVB protection that doubles as a makeup primer. Instantly minimizes pores and blurs imperfections, leaving an even, matte finish. Non-comedogenic.

DO I NEED TO USE ALL THE RECHARGE REGIMEN STEPS TO GET RESULTS?

Yes. Remember that consistency is key. 80% of how your skin appears tomorrow is based on what you do every day. We all know how important it is to eat healthy and exercise to look our best-now and in the future. Do the same for your skin with RECHARGE Regimen.

Each step of the RECHARGE Regimen was designed to build upon the last. To boost and maintain your healthiest-looking skin, the formulas must be used in combination. Skipping any step could hinder achieving maximum results.

WHAT ARE THE FEATURED INGREDIENTS OF RECHARGE REGIMEN AND WHY WERE THEY CHOSEN?

RECHARGE features our proprietary Electri5 Complex that acts like a super vitamin for your skin. It is a powerful blend of 5 nutrient-rich ingredients that work together for maximum efficacy:

  • RFA+ antioxidant is a groundbreaking technology to boost skin’s energy to defend against the visible signs of stress, and early onset aging.

SHOULD I USE RECHARGE REGIMEN IN THE MORNING OR THE EVENING?

We recommend using RECHARGE Regimen as directed twice daily. During the day your skin is charged to defend itself against environmental assault. RECHARGE helps prep and protect your face all day, so it looks its best. In the evening RECHARGE cleanses away all the dirt and pollution from the day and provides your skin with nutrient-rich ingredients to help skin naturally repair itself during your circadian cycle.

WHEN DO I USE EACH STEP OF THE RECHARGE REGIMEN?

For best results use the full Regimen twice a day.

  • Step 1: ☀️ 🌙
    Use our 3-in-1 Super Cleanser in the morning and evening. Wet fingers and massage a thin, even layer of product over entire face. Make sure to avoid the eye area. Rinse thoroughly with water and pat dry.
  • Step 2: ☀️ 🌙
    Use Ultra Boost Moisturizing Treatment after cleansing in the morning and evening. Apply 2–3 pumps onto fingertips and massage onto face until absorbed, avoiding the eye area. Do not rinse off.
  • Step 3: ☀️
    Every morning after moisturizing, apply Protect + Blur Broad Spectrum SPF 30 in small amounts on your face. Smooth and blend evenly over entire face in an outward direction, making sure to rub all the way in until fully absorbed. Avoid the eye area. Wear alone or as a makeup primer to hold makeup in place all day.

CAN I USE RECHARGE REGIMEN NEAR THE EYES?

No. We do not recommend using RECHARGE Regimen near the eye area. If you are looking for added moisture around your eye area we suggest using ENHANCEMENTS Bright Eye Complex with 3D3P Molecular Matrix technology to help brighten the eye area and reduce the appearance of dark circles and puffiness. Or use the REDEFINE Multi-Function Eye Cream with powerful peptides to minimize the appearance of fine lines and crow’s feet.

WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO APPLY THE PROTECT + BLUR BROAD SPECTRUM SPF 30 TO ENSURE IT FULL ABSORPTION?

RECHARGE Protect + Blur Broad Spectrum SPF 30 provides 100% Mineral based UVA/UVB protection. Mineral-based sunscreens are physical sunscreens that provides a ‘shield’ on top of your skin to scatter UV radiation before it can penetrate the skin. We use natural mineral sunscreen ingredients (Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide) because they are unlikely to irritate skin or clog pores.

However, as we most mineral sunscreens, you must apply properly to prevent leaving a light opaque finish on skin. RECHARGE Step 3 was designed to virtually disappear into all skin tones after application, but proper application is key.

For best results apply in thin layers on your face. Start with a small amount and blend well until fully absorbed into skin. Given the consistency of mineral sunscreens it may take a little longer to rub it in completely so spend a little extra time massaging into your skin to ensure full absorption and protection. For additional protection, re-visit with another layer.

WHAT ARE THE CLINICAL RESULTS WITH THE RECHARGE REGIMEN?

RECHARGE delivers both immediate results and helps visibly improve skin over time. When used twice-daily, the RECHARGE Regimen is clinically demonstrated to help skin appear hydrated, vibrant and healthy-looking.

HOW AND WHY SHOULD YOU INCORPORATE PORE CLEANSING MD SYSTEM WITH RECHARGE REGIMEN?

WHY DID THE DOCTORS DEVELOP PORE CLEANSING MD SYSTEM?

Dr. Katie Rodan and Dr. Kathy Fields are inspired by their patients for every Rodan + Fields product that they make. After seeing patients with pore concerns for over 30 years, they developed a prototype suction tool they used in their offices for pore extraction treatments as an alternative to painful metal dermatological tools. Their patients loved these treatments so much so that the Doctors decided to bring the benefits of the Dermatology office to your home with the Pore Cleansing MD System. They also sought to create something to clean deeper than at-home cleansers, scrubs and strips to allow Customers to completely unclog pores and remove blackheads.

The Pore Cleansing MD System includes a prep solution, customisable tool with two suction levels and two kinds of interchangeable tips. It is easy to use and provides dermatological benefits of in-office services. Pore Cleansing Tool MD uses gentle exfoliation and suction combined with the right amount of pressure to immediately remove bacteria, excess oil, and blackheads helping to reduce potential for inflammation and acne. All while restoring a clearer, healthier, more radiantlooking complexion.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A CLOGGED PORE AND A BLACKHEAD?

Clogged pores are flat, greyish in tone and enlarged at the surface of skin often showing up on your nose, forehead or chin. A build-up of excess sebum (skin’s natural oil), debris and dead skin cells deep within that leads to visible congestion, stretching and enlargement of pores.

Blackheads are dark, hardened and slightly raised at the surface. This is a pore that has been clogged long and is exposed to air causing the buildup to oxidize and turn black.

Both clogged pores and blackheads can lead to breakouts.

WHO SHOULD USE THE PORE CLEANSING MD SYSTEM AND WHY?

If your pores are clogged, enlarged or stretched due to buildup or if you have stubborn blackheads, we have your answer. Dr. Katie Rodan and Dr. Kathy Fields developed the Pore Cleansing MD System for most everyone concerned with their pores; specifically this System is designed for:

  • Oily or combination skin types
  • Skin experiencing excess oil production due to hormonal changes/stressors
  • Skin experiencing slowdown of skin cell renewal and buildup of dead skin cells

Do not use if you have thin, fragile, sensitive skin or skin that is prone to broken capillaries or bruising. Also avoid use on acne lesions such as whiteheads or inflamed pimples.

The Doctors created this System as an alternative to painful extractions with metal dermatological tools, topical products that don’t clean deep enough and strips that only touch the surface. They also know that squeezing and pressing on clogged pores and blackheads with fingers often pushes contents deeper into the pore leading to inflammation, acne pimples and/or scarring.

With the Pore Cleansing MD System, you can experience professional-level deep pore cleansing to remove clogged pores and stubborn blackheads in the comfort of your own home. The perfect combination of the exfoliation combined with precise suction and pressure removes excess oil, dead skin cells, debris and blackheads instantly with minimal discomfort or redness.

WHY IS USING PORE CLEANSING MD SYSTEM IMPORTANT TO MY SKIN?

Having clear pores not only looks good but is good for your skin! We have over 10,000 pores on our face which are very important to your overall skin health. Pores provide sebum (oil) that is vital to condition and protect skin with a natural moisture factor to keep it resilient, supple, moisturised and healthy. The Pore Cleansing MD System unclogs your pores on the body and face, helping maintain skin health. With regular use, your skin will look healthier with less visible pores and more even texture.

The Pore Cleansing Tool works with two targeted kinds of tips to deep clean pores with two suction power levels for a personalised experience.

  • Pore Cleansing Tip – For clogged, congested pores: Provides precise amount of suction & pressure to extract pore-clogging dead skin cells, excess oils and debris. Recommend using once weekly in the T-zone area for a deep clean and if needed, on the back, shoulders or chest.
  • Blackhead Removal Tip – For stubborn blackheads: Uses a dual-force, spring-action mechanism for precise suction and pressure to target hard-to-remove blackheads. Recommend using as needed all-over face (avoiding lip and cheek areas) as need for stubborn blackheads.
